As you can see from the title, soon after resuming from sleep (within 30 seconds), my screen will sometimes flicker and go black. A few seconds later, it will be back to normal and Most of the time, I'll get a message that my graphics driver has failed. Rarely, the screen will go black permanently, forcing me to hard restart the system.
Could this be a psu issue? I RMA'd the first card with this issue. With that card, I would resume from sleep and immediately hit a black screen (the screen wouldn't turn on). On restart it would present me with a BSOD 116 (graphics driver failure).
Yes, I've updated/reinstalled my drivers.
i7-920 @ 3.0 ghz (Slight OC. I brought it down to stock from 3.6 ghz thinking that it might stop my issue).
evga gtx 470
6gb G.Skill 1600mhz (running well under 1600mhz)
750-watt Apevia Warlock Series
I at one point had two 470s running. I RMAd my original, then things didn't work out running the new one. Got the original (or a replacement... whatever) back from RMA and RMAd the DOA one that I recently bought.
Right now it's 99% stable, except every week or two I'll get a slightly different BSOD. This week was a 1a bsod. When I went into the bluescreen error viewer I have, it mentioned memory management.
Here's what the bluescreen reader says:
